U.S. Open Championship
June 19, 2011 by staff
U.S. Open Championship, As I was watching the first round of play in the U.S. Open this year, a list of winners of the last seven U.S. Amateurs appeared on the screen. A victory in the Amateur Championship gives a player an automatic invitation to play in the upcoming U.S. Open. The list shows how each player was playing as an amateur in this prestigious tournament.
Peter Uihlein, the winner of the Amateur, 2010, there was a question mark by his name. Until the tournament is finished, we do not know how you will do. Ryan Moore finished in a T-57 in his seven-year effort. Three golfers were MC (missed cut) next to their names and two had a DNP next to their names.
The idea came to me immediately. How cans anyone not playing the U.S. Open if given the chance? Why would anyone decline the invitation? Without knowing the reasons shows that no, I took the list of pros and cons to compete at the U.S. Open invited as an amateur.
Before taking a reading of the reasons I give, you accept the premise that it would be an invitation to play. Given the fact that it must be the amateur winner (or runner) as an invitation is not likely to find its way to my mailbox. Suppose however, that gave me a chance to play and now I have to make a decision.
To play or not play? That is the question.
A chance to play in a fabulous golf course. U.S. Open Championship Tour course to course. He has held the likes of Pebble Beach, Pinehurst No. 2, Southern Hills, Oakmont, Bethpage Black, Inverness, Baltusrol, Torrey Pines, Shinnecck Hills, Winged Foot, Medina, Merino, Hazeltine and the Olympic Club.
To play one of these courses would be an impossible dream for most golfers. Although the course would be set to play more than usual, you cannot miss the opportunity to play these classic designs. Can you?
An opportunity to get up close and personal with the best golfers in the world. Can you imagine being in the same green putting the likes of Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald, Padraig Harrington, Sergio Garcia, Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson? On the putting green, maybe. In the field of practice, and maybe not.
I can see me with Bubba in the range. It would hit 6 irons more than I can hit a driver. Maybe just going to work on my chipping.
A chance to get some autographs. Golfers are better than most professional sports stars in the firm to the gallery. I realize that my game I’m actually inside the ropes (does not that sound a bit ridiculous statement), but I would definitely take my felt-tip pen with me.
I guess it would be a little silly playing with a hat on containing the signatures of many, but it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get these autographs. Therefore, I am going for.
An opportunity to have a caddy. It sends a mixed signal. I wish I had someone with my bag and clubs to give advice, but would have to walk the course. Except for the tips, I thought the little motorized vehicles would be given to you and your bag of clubs around the course.
For some reason, the definition of Mark Twain for golf has come to mind. He suggested that golf was a good walk spoiled. I still think I’m going to take the risk.
Having to move on. For many of these fans have to mean losing your high school graduation from college. Those days are long past for me. Thursday night is pizza night though. Steady now. They probably have food in these places Open. This is not going to stop hitting the links at Pebble Beach or some historical sites.
I have not had any good reason for not participating, but I could be one.
In fact, I would have to publish my results. I have understood you have to play his ball from where it hit him in these tournaments. I would not be able to use the wedge of the foot or other means to save my score in the U.S. Open. In other words, I could embarrass greatly.
Rory McIlroy was another golfer who has not passed in the U.S. Open this year. After her seventeenth hole in the second round reached 13 under par score. No one had ever reached that score so that a record was set. I wonder what the record is the worst ever filmed. I think I would have a shot at it. I could see the three digits of my scorecard.
Would the possibility of shooting in two rounds of the same would have many pros score after four to be an impediment for me to accept the invitation? No way! Sign. I’ll take my chances. Also, have you noticed that players rarely fight much time watching TV?
